BARANGAY TAMBONG


Brief History

Tambong which is located behind Aguiauan is noted for sadok, salakot, sawali, tabungos, malindog and other bamboo products.

In earlier times, this place was a body of water called linaw or small lake. The residents, in bayanihan fashion, cut down big trees and dump then into this small lake. They also dumped rubbish and soil and whatever they could afford to throw away. Soon this little lake disappeared through dumping method called tambong in the dialect. That's how the name of this place came about.

Former heads were Titong Pedir, Anacleto Monot, Matias Calvo, Alfonso Molomog, angel Polido, Zino Payopani (1935-1954) and Andres Fial (1956-1959), Alejandro Felicisimo (1959-1979).

Tambong shares its barrio fiesta with Aguiauan's patroness, Lady of Lourdes, whose feast is celebrated in February.
